Computing with Secondary Education BSc (Hons)



What will I learn?


TThis course is ideal for students who want to develop their knowledge of Computing as well as gain Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) which will allow them to teach in a secondary educational environment. Students on this course will be supported to become a confident and competent secondary school teacher who can enable children to learn effectively.

Why choose this course?

  • The BSc (Hons) Computing with Secondary Education course allows you to explore your chosen subject specialism in depth and gradually moves from an emphasis on the acquisition of subject knowledge and its applications in Year One and Year Two, to an emphasis on the pedagogical and professional knowledge and understanding required by an effective subject specialist teacher in the final year.
  • Alongside your subject modules in Year Two, you will also undertake one education module which aims to introduce you to the foundations of pedagogical theory and effective teaching.
  • In the final year of your study, you will undertake Level 6 education modules alongside postgraduate teacher training students, as well as completing professional practice that will allow you to be recommended for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).

How will I study?

You’ll experience both university-based training and secondary professional practice. Although these two contexts are physically different, the learning and teaching strategies overlap and allow for an integration of subject knowledge, pedagogical theory and practice. The courses consist of a range of teaching and learning activities to support you with appropriate opportunities to succeed. Course tutors recognise their responsibility to provide timely, relevant, engaging and appropriate content and resources to support this.

To ensure your progress, inclusive teaching and learning approaches are used which involve staff in providing teaching which meets individual needs. Over the three years, we expect you to move towards more independent learning, to set your own development targets, and to draw on others’ expertise to support you in meeting these targets.
